Rythms of Grace: Where we Live, Work, Go to School and Play

 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

Matthew 11:28-30 The Message


As people who love and follow Jesus, we are called to embody the resurrection- the Jesus Story- in every context of our lives. It’s a whole-life faith! 


By the power of the Holy Spirit we are both drawn in close - we gather as a church family to celebrate His presence together and be transformed as He meets us in indescribable ways (Psalm 22:3) - and sent out wide - to love God and love others where we live, work, go to school and play. This Divine pulling in and propelling out is meant to set a cadence for our lives, tuned to the steady beat of God’s heart.


We sometimes get so focused on the drawing in close part, that we forget the sent out wide part. We tend to lose track of the fact that the majority of our lived experience actually happens outside of church walls- that loving God and loving others is meant for every place and every time and every thing.


But this kind of life- living fully in the Spirit at all times- is not meant to be a burden or struggle, strapped down by rigid rules and impossible expectations, rather a life of freedom, peace and joy. We are meant to live by the “unforced rhythms of grace” that Jesus teaches us- freely and lightly, in step with Him. (Matthew 11:28-30)


How do we learn these unforced rhythms? How do we get in step with Jesus in every context of our lives? (What would that even look like?) And what if, when it comes to rhythm, you’ve got two left feet?


The invitation is the same for each one of us;


“Come to me, learn from me, work with me- I’ll show you.” 


Come along with us as we answer this invitation from Jesus, together.

The Story: Exploring God's vision

A Million Little Miracles: Celebrating 40 Years as a church

To mark this milestone as a church family, we sat down with some of our founding members and asked them to share the story of Forest Brook, how they see God at work in the present, and their dreams for the future. We honour the many little steps of faith they, along with others, took to establish God's church at Forest Brook, and we celebrate all God has in store for us! Happy Birthday Forest Brook!
